Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a special formula for this, do you know what it is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't the steps be to do: Y2  Y1 Over X2  X1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That part I do know, but it's the part that comes after I'm not so sure of

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now you can just pick which ever points you wan as Y2 X2 and so on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the answer always supposed to be a fraction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example if you get 10/5 the slope might end up being 5 which would technically be 5/1 in rise over run form. Making 5 rise and 1 run

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sorry the slope will end up being 2*

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0always, but when you graph the fraction even if you get slope 4 for example you would still move 1 to the right. Did i answer your questions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just one last thought, but it is common for the rise to be negative sometimes right?

yazthespaz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but when your simplifying the slope form, if the rise is negative the whole slope is negative just like when the run is negative the whole slope is negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically the rise cannot be negative and the run is positive, if one is negative they are both negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ahh, I see it now. Thank you
